Default Why is my screen is not locking?

Hi I am using a new Samsung III Advance which was working perfectly but now I am seeing that my screen is no longer locking after the phone stands idle. I have gone through all the settings and I cannot find any logical explanation...use visible pattern and timeout are both selected. ANY SUGGESTIONS PLS!
